Well, our house finally appeared on Fannie Mae's web site today. I called the listing agent...
Of course, she told me that she has 4 other offers coming in (what, no one knows about this house). I think she was bluffing but, I am not sure.
She listed the house for $79,900 (it did not sell at auction for 50K so....). I think that listing price is "crazy high" for this area.
I stuck to my low ball offer $25,500 CASH with the closing in 7-14 days. Plus, buyer agrees to pay closing costs, taxes, and realtor fees.
Now, I only have $35,000 to play so, if/when they counter or reject, I do not have alot of bargaining room.
She did the contract but had to submit the offer online to a company called 24AMN ... the company selling it (?) and she noted in the comment line the reason for the low offer is due to the MOLD. She commented on it in the remarks section but, said she could not send the actual estimate thru their system. I think this was a mistake but, she refused to send it with our offer.
So......do any of you have a thought as to if this will get laughed at ?????????????? I just have a bad feeling because the realtor seemed less than interested in working with us and only submitted the offer because she was "required by law" to do so.
~~~~~~ Praying for our dream house ~~~~~~
